Milkweed Bug or Not? - Boisea trivittata

Milkweed Bug or Not? - Boisea trivittata
Kingston, Frontenac, Ontario, Canada
October 25, 2012
I thought at first these were Small Milkweed Bugs but I'm not sure? They resemble the Neacoryphus lateralis in Kaufman's Fieldguide to North American Insects. I've searched the internet but there seems to be very little info on them (what they eat, where they live etc) and next to no photos. I have about 2 hundred of these bugs on the outside wall of my basement. The East side is stucco and gets warm in the mornings, bringing them out. They seem to prefer staying on the stucco and not on the siding. No idea why. Any help is appreciated!

Thank you very much. I guess I missed that one entirely.
